Sunday Roast and Yorkshire Pudding
The true British classic and firm favourite amongst most Brits is the Sunday Roast. Traditionally this meal is eaten any time on Sunday from 12 noon to about 5pm, with the whole family at home, or at your local bar and restaurant or carvery. You can have it with chicken, beef or lamb and there are also veggie options. The meat comes with roast potatoes, vegetables, gravy and the all-important Yorkshire pudding.
